Moving Charlie McCarthy

Moving Charlie McCarthy

In the late1800s, Marysburg township farmer Charlie McCarthy was buried at the StateInsane Asylum in Saint Peter. In 2010, the Generations Project of BrighamYoung University chose McCarthy as a subject of a documentary examiningthe degrading account of a fateful trip from Saint Peter to Marysburg in whichMcCarthy lost his feet. This program debunks the accusations of the Saint PeterTribune and shows the difficulties involved when the descendant’s familyengaged Larry Kortuem to move Charlie’s grave from Saint Peter to join his wifein Marysburg. The program includes footage of the grave opening and reburialdone in the standards of the 1800s. A fascinating story full of history!
